Sportonomics, Hardback


Every sports fan loves a stat, and Sportonomics uses them in a clever and creative way to explain why listening to David Bowie can mean the difference between winning and losing, and how wearing red can improve your chances of sporting success. Bringing the facts to life with charts and graphics, Sportonomics explores the technical and the serious, the fun and the fanciful to offer an alternative take on commonly accepted sporting knowledge. So, from considering the true cost to fans of football's divers to analysing how fast humans might possibly run the 100 metres, the book is packed with astute observations and fascinating theories that will make sports fans stand up
